User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.4 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/22.0.1229.79 Safari/537.4

Steps to reproduce:

Launch firefox in Windows from a user account containing non-ANSI 'ğ' character.


Actual results:

A message box showing the following text with only an OK button: Could not initialize the application's security component. The most likely cause is ... (q.v. attachments)
Firefox is not allowing browsing.

Upon inspection with procmon, firefox seems to be calling CreateFileA method, while it should presumably call CreateFileW for unicode support.


Expected results:

Firefox should allow browsing.
